May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2016/17) there are twenty four children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher) and Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development



-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

To infinity and beyond!

In terms 5 and 6 May Hill Class are going on amazing journeys.

Using our rocket and flying carpet we will explore space and magical lands. We will be writing poetry and stories about our travels. In d.t. we will be making rockets and hot air balloons as well as investigating symmetry and shapes in maths. In drama we will be looking at traditional tales such as Little Red Riding Hood and acting out the Three Billy Goats Gruff with our own bridge. Watch out for the troll! In science we will be investigating flight and floating and sinking. We will be making pirate maps in geography and hoping to find pieces of eight around school grounds. During our visit to the Waterways Museum we will travel back in time and become bargepeople. In art we will be sewing, printing and painting all forms of transport.

In term 6 we look forward to welcoming our new Reception intake on Thursday mornings.

Don't forget to look at our topic board in the corridor to see how busy we are.
